My Jewish Detroit

Last revised 7 October 2019

Calendars: Federation

Our mission is to re-establish a strong Jewish presence in Detroit, both to help the Jewish community and to revitalize the City of Detroit. We list sit down restaurants (not carry out) that are either 100% Kosher or 100% vegetarian in Detroit and its suburbs.

Kosher certification is via Kosher Michigan (KM), Star-K (SK) or Vaad / Council of Orthodox Rabbis of Greater Detroit (VA)

The listings are divided into 4 sections: Detroit restaurants that are Kosher or vegetarian and Suburban restaurants that are Kosher or vegetiarian.
